The two teams face off in the first-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie at Old Trafford.
Alves said, "I think we have to learn from the mistakes made during the competition and not reproduce the same mistakes. There are few games in the Champions League, so there is little room for error. We have to capitalise on what we do well, because we have great ambition in this competition.
"We need to raise our level of performance, concentration, raise our level in duels, but I know we can do it, and we will do it. It will not be easy, of course, they will not give us presents. We will have to race for each other to get the qualification."
